Charm

Aside from Mrs. Vinya Gomez Alcantara, what I found most charming about Casa San Pablo were the sculptures and antique furniture and knick-knacks found in, out and about the guest rooms and cottages.

A young boy starting to fall asleep on a bench. Whoever the artist was, I think he captured well our experience of Casa San Pablo.

I scrolled down through the previous post, also. I think whoever's in charge of your annual R&R should be applauded! What a great place to sit back and relax and let waves of good feelings wash over you!

The history of the place was also most interesting. When you write that Mrs. Alcantara is in her 80s that doesn't seem so old to me anymore! :-)

And yes, the well is "faux."
